Jewellery by Gauthier
by Kate Gauthier
Hi, my name is Kate Gauthier and I live in Liverpool. I love jewellery and love hand making it. I make earrings, necklaces, bracelets and brooches that are easy to wear. My favourite materials are Silver, Swarovski, beads, pearls, crystals, charms, wire, gold, enamel and other contemporary materials. My designs are my own ideas so are original and unique, I take pride in making my designs and hope that shows in the finished products. All pieces are sent in a lovely gift box, custom orders are accepted, and if you see a piece you like but would prefer different coloured beads etc please contact me to discuss.
My inspiration comes from versatile materials that catch my eye and look nice but I try hard to design and make pieces that are unique.
Finally, I hope you enjoy looking at my stall!

Pink all Sorts
by Julia Thompson
"I live in Surrey where I source and make all my candles, wax melts and soaps. I source most of my cups and saucers from charity shops and am always thinking what colour and scent would go best with what design is on the container.  I set up Pinkallsorts in April 2011 and can honestly say, have enjoyed every minute of it.  I am looking forward to taking part in my second CRAFTfest in March 2012 :-)"

Lynne MacPherson Designs
by Lynne MacPherson

My name is Lynne MacPherson and I am married with two young children. I am currently living just north of Edinburgh but have spent most of my life in and around the Western Highlands of Scotland, predominantly on the Isle of Raasay, which is where I picked up the skills to
produce my home accessories. Because of the constraints associated with having a young family, I decided to put my thoughts and skills to work and see what I could produce for the open market, using only the very finest Harris Tweed, which I pick up on my many trips over to the Islands of Lewis and Harris.

The end result, I think, is really quite special. All fabrics have their own personalities, and the pieces I produce from Tweed are no different. They are unique, tactile and luxurious. I take a lot of time and pride in the pieces that I make and hope you enjoy having them in your home as much as I did making them …
